After four intense rounds of voting, a panel of judges narrowed down 32 'hot' finalists to just two- Amber and Monty.

More than 200 thousand Americans voted for the contestant sonline, then the judges decided the winning female and male sexiest vegetarian for 2009.

Amber, from Minesota, decided to go vegetarian after reading the book Skinny Bitch.

While Monty, 33, from California, switched to the vegetarian diet for health reasons.

Both contestants say thier love of animals helped them make the switch to vegan diets.
